It does remind me of the Chanel WOC in methods, however it’s larger than that. Because it is available in so many colors (over 10), I assumed Oak was at all times such a basic and may be worn with every thing as I’ve earlier expertise with my Oak Lily. I discover that to be a barely extra informal bag given it’s form, and this one is extra elegant, so I’m masking each bases now!

As I discussed, this Small Darley is the smallest within the assortment, with measurements of: Top
– 13cm, Width – 19cm, Depth – 4.5cm, and Shoulder strap drop – 56cm. I’m 5ft 4″ and a dimension UK 8 if that helps with the sizing comparability on my modelled photographs under.

A few of my older Mulberry luggage are from 2011 and they’re nonetheless holding up effectively, the leather-based simply will get a bit darker with age. This Small Darley is comprised of a Pure Grain Oak Leather-based which is a pure trying, grainy leather-based that has been 100% vegetable tanned, equally to their pure leather-based. It has been print assisted to make the grain constant and common, which you’ll be able to see within the shut up pictures. As a result of pure tannage of the leather-based, the bag will age fantastically including character to it, which like I mentioned, has occurred with my Lily. The liner inside is a easy nappa so there’s no pebbled look on the within, however I additionally discover the pebbled grain leather-based makes it extra sturdy and fewer more likely to scratch because it’s extra exhausting carrying. It’s simply cared for too with a Collonil Leather-based Gel, however I simply maintain mine out of the heavy rain and inside their mud luggage.

The High quality

As you already know from my submit I did a few months in the past referred to as Why You Need The 6 Classic Mulberry Bags, I really took a break from the model for a couple of years resulting from them producing their luggage outdoors of England and having a lesser high quality, which I wasn’t a fan of for those who’re paying all that cash, however then I came upon the model had gone by means of an overhaul and solely constructed their luggage in England once more and had gone again to their authentic high quality. This explicit bag I can’t fault; the stitching is ideal, it’s symmetrical, it’s sturdy, it’s extraordinarily effectively made to final, and it’s made in England! In fact the within nappa leather-based is tender sufficient to scratch, however it’s rather more sturdy than the leather-based on a Chanel for instance. When you get an opportunity to take a look at a Mulberry Small Darley in a store, you need to, you’ll be fairly amazed at how effectively it’s made.

The Value

The retail worth of the Mulberry Small Darley is £550, which I really assume may be very, excellent for a designer bag. When you concentrate on the value tag of luggage just like this from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Celine, Saint Laurent and so on, it’s effectively above £1000 normally and Chanel’s primary WOC alone is round £1600 now, so £550 is a discount as compared. I’m not by any means saying that is low-cost for a bag, because it’s not for those who’re not into designer equipment, it’s nonetheless an funding piece, however as compared, I believe it’s an excellent deal. Particularly if you’ll be able to rating one within the sale, like me. You’ll be able to’t actually go fallacious for a British made, designer purse. I’ll at all times advocate Mulberry as a place to begin for anybody trying to construct a designer bag assortment.

Total Opinion

I’m fairly positive (for those who made it this far) you may see I’ve no points with the bag in any respect. I imply if I needed to choose one, I truthfully don’t know what I might go for, apart from perhaps not such a tender leather-based inside because it’s straightforward to mark along with your nails, however that’s irrelevant. I really like the dimensions, the form, the model, the design, the convenience of use, the methods you may put on it as cross-body, on the shoulder, or as a clutch, the completely different compartments for organisation, the leather-based… I may go on. I believe the Oak Pure Grain enhances the gold {hardware} completely, it’s undoubtedly an all spherical versatile bag. You’re going to be seeing it a lot in my outfits, identical to my Oak Lily. It’s excellent, and even higher for the value I picked it up for on my birthday. Now all I would like is a pink one… To date it solely comes within the larger dimension and never the small, so I’m ready patiently! Anyway, I hope you loved my assessment.
